Integration of Pedagogy into Technology: A Practical Paradigm

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


Technology, with its rapid growth and vast impacts on all areas of human life, has increased well-being and facilitated daily tasks in our private life as well as in business and marketing, medical and healthcare services, and education. The global Covid-19 pandemic has shown the importance of Internet and technology to keep businesses running and reduce the problems emerging from social distancing and even saving lives through healthcare systems; likewise, educational systems speeded their technological facilities to run and develop normal educational activities. Although many studies had already acknowledged the necessity of using technology in education, the lack of facilities and knowledge of using technology in educational systems was reported in the beginning of the pandemic. The pandemic pushed educational systems to integrate technology into pedagogy by facilitating information transfer and communication. However, the challenge of enhancing the quality of information is still prevalent. This paper focuses on a bilateral necessity of integration of pedagogy and technology: while the potential of technology in educational systems is widely acknowledged, the practical usage of learning theories and pedagogical principles in designing digital services is far from a completed mission. Many user-experience (UX) studies determine technological, behavioral, social, and motivational factors to promote user-centric design to enhance the quality of content, while limited attention is given to pedagogical factors. We introduce integration of pedagogy into technology as a new paradigm in user-centric design, not only in the educational system but also in a general context. Mishra and Koehler (2006) introduced integration of technology into pedagogy (TP) through the Technological Pedagogical Content (TPACK) framework as required knowledge for teachers. This paper employs the TP concept in a broader context of Technological Pedagogical Content Design (TPCD), which utilizes the pedagogical element in the user-experience based practice to develop a user-centric design approach
